Having said that, this book is a little heavy-handed on the erotic scenes for my taste. But I'm a prude for sure. I'm sure there is an entire market out there for this. If you're looking for hot & bothered, you will not be disappointed. I blushed too many times for my liking. But it was worth it to get to the brilliant family scenes, the believable machismo of the work site or the perfectly captured excitement of a budding romance.
I did feel uncomfortable with Walter at times when they were living together. He was a bit too dirty old man for me in the way he phrased things. The "Get in the kitchen & rattle pots and pans!" and "come sit on daddy's lap" comments were too much. But I wasn't sure if that's what he was going for. Maybe Plakcy was trying to show that Walter wasn't the perfect dreamboat we all wanted him to be; maybe he had some creep in him too. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. But I think Plakcy enjoys delivering the expected of a genre and then making sure he throws in his own statement on the reality of that genre too. Much like the first dinner scene in Naples, which you expect to be pure romance saccharin and then as Walter is recounting an extremely personal story, Manny is only thinking about the damn bread basket!! Such a perfect statement on their age differences, all in one perfect paragraph, without any judgement at all. THIS is Trademark Plakcy--subtle treasures that don't need to proclaim their brilliance.
I think this is my first construction site book, so that's what immediately drew me to it. I've wanted to read this series for a while and while I liked it, I didn't love it. The build up between Manny and Walter was nice, but the ending was a little too abrupt. Their story is not finished, so I wonder if they'll be mentioned in the rest of the series.
